What is Chemical Skin Peeling?

chemical peeling (from the English to peel) consists of applying one or more exfoliating chemical agents to the skin for a sufficient period of time in order to interact with the first superficial then deep cell layers of the epidermis, causing selective and predictable damage to the skin.

These treatments, performed in expert hands, yield excellent results in terms of skin radiance, improved texture and quality.

The products applied initially lead to a reduction in the cohesion of keratinocytes and if kept for a long time, their lysis, with the complete detachment of 'dead' cells from the face. At the level of the epidermis, peeling determines

  • removal of the horny layer of the skin and the keratinous plug of comedones
  • increased cell turnover with relative exfoliation
  • reduction of sebaceous gland activity
  • stimulation of fibroblasts to produce glycoproteins and new collagen, with restructuring of the fibrous component of the dermis

The treatable areas are:

  • face in its entirety
  • neck and décolleté

The treatment lasts a few minutes and is carried out at the doctor's office.

The result of the treatment is appreciable after 2-4 applications depending on the thickness and quality of the skin, with sessions that can be spaced out between 2 and 3 weeks.

At the end of the treatment the skin will be slightly reddened and in the following days there will be a progressive exfoliation of the surface layer of the skin.

The final result will be appreciable after 2-3 weeks and is strongly correlated to the number of sessions performed.

It is advisable to protect the skin from the sun throughout the treatment phase and in the following months.
